In honour of ‘Drawing Day’, which is today by the way, we thought we’d share 6 iPad drawing apps for kids. There’s probably no better way for kids to express their creativity than through drawing, sketching and painting. Kids who have the inclination to draw, to sketch and to paint must be encouraged to do so as much as possible. With technology helping us to be more more creative in our lives, there’s a huge range of iPad drawing apps for kids on the market, so we thought we’d share our favourites with you.

Have a look at our iPad drawing apps for kids and let us know the ones your kids love the most too:


1. Drawing Pad £1.49

Drawing Pad is a mobile art studio for all ages! Children can create their own art using photo-realistic crayons, markers, paint brushes, coloured pencils, stickers, roller pens and more! There is a video tutorial within the app but all they need to do is tap a tool, choose a colour and start drawing – it’s really that simple.

2. Draw + Tell HD £1.99

Draw and Tell is an award-winning creative tool for children of all ages that encourages imagination, story telling and open-ended play. Children can use the tool to draw, colour, decorate with stickers, create animations and record stories.

3. Ookii Squiggles £1.49

Join Ookii, the lovable dinosaur, as he guides your little one on a fantastic voyage of creativity, where a child’s simple hand-drawn squiggle can become a bird’s nest, a lion’s mane, a curly beard, and more! Simply squiggle away and then hit the PLAY button and watch your drawings come alive!

4. Lazoo Artbox £1.49

Lazoo Art Box is a living, breathing colouring book! Simply colour a page, press the GO button, and your child can watch their drawings come to life.  A few dots become falling snow. Scribbles turn to smoke plumes puffed from chimneys. A jagged line pulsates into fire (or water or mustard or whatever a child imagines) spewing from a dinosaur’s mouth.

5. Mister Maker – Let’s Make It £2.99

Budding ‘Mini Makers’ can get creative and experiment with hundreds of different colours, patterns, papers, things to glue, funny faces, bits & pieces and stickers from the Doodle Drawers using 8 different tools and special effects. Featuring Mister Maker himself, The Shapes, Tocky, The Doodle Drawers, Minute Makes, Frame It….plus all the familiar music and sound effects from the TV show; Mister Maker – Let’s Make It! is guaranteed to offer hours of creative fun for children of all ages.

6. Sago Mini Doodlecast £2.29

Sago Mini Doodlecast is a unique drawing app that records your child’s voice as they draw. Capture every stroke, word and giggle. It comes with 36 drawing prompts – simple questions designed to inspire your child’s imagination. Choose a prompt or start from scratch. The app records the entire drawing process along with audio from the microphone to create short videos. The videos are as fun to watch as they are to create and it’s a great way for kids to express themselves through art and conversation. Perfect for children aged 2-6 years.
